Mannheim Steamroller 30/40 Live

Airing Saturday, August 13 at 8 p.m.

Celebrate 30 years of musical holiday magic and 40 years of groundbreaking “Fresh Aire” compositions with this milestone special from the American group known for blending classical music and rock. Includes interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.

MANNHEIM STEAMROLLER 30/40 LIVE was captured in high definition and recorded in surround sound over two evenings in December 2014 at the Orpheum Theater in Omaha, Nebraska, the group’s hometown. The program features songs from their ever-popular Mannheim Steamroller Christmas annual tour, including the iconic “Deck the Halls” arrangement by Grammy Award-winning composer Chip Davis, “God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen,” “Silent Night,” and a special performance of “Greensleeves” featuring Elyse Davis, the daughter of Chip Davis. New performances from composer/producer Davis’ early career “Fresh Aire” series include “Toccata” and Four Rows of Jacks.”
